The white criss-crossed mid-century modern rug works really nicely within the grey decor. This is a very nice modern and trendy living room design. Check out our super easy plant guide, on hard to kill plants for your living spaces. Note how they have textured the room with different pillows and throws.

#2 Clean Grey Living Room

This one looks staged, but it’s still a cool looking living space to inspire your bachelor pad. The un-saturated orange stiped pillows work really well here, to accent the dominating grey furniture and walls. Hmm, come to think of it the orange and grey combination seems to be a recurring theme, something to think about if you choose to go grey.

#3 Grey Couch, Grey Carpet

The grey couch and grey carpet combo is a popular one when furnishing a cool grey living room. That’s a nice throw too, check out our awesome throw article for more throw ideas.

#4 Moody Grey Living Room

This grey living space even has a grey wooden flooring, which is unusual, it would probably look better with a more modern natural wood colored floor, with a grey carpet. Note the L-shaped couch, which seems to be a theme!

#5 What Ever the Hell This is

Living Room Ideas For Men 7

Another pretty fresh looking and bright grey living space. I think that coffee table is from Superman’s home planet. Interesting choice of wall art there too… This one was more about how you can vary the shades of grey to style a living room, the actual execution in this case is hideous!

#6 Super Fresh Light Grey

Cool grey living room right here, this one maybe even too grey! Again, the flooring would probably benefit from having a natural wooden flooring. Sweet giant cactus though.

#7 White and Grey Living Space and Dining Room

A nice mixture of white and grey, with natural wood flooring. Mixing in the white is a good idea to brighten up your living space.

#8 Sexy Charcoal Grey and Black

Charcoal still counts as grey! Apparently… This charcoal grey and black living space a super cool male living space idea. The black coffee table is a particularly cool addition to the living room.

#9 Grey Mid-century Modern

This multi-grey shaded living room is in the mid-century modern style. Which we did an article on if you’re interested.

#10 Grey and Orange

Some more grey and orange combos! This big piece of orange wall art really brings the living space together, the accent pillows match and compliment the wall art too, giving the largely neutrally colored room some character.

#11 Charcoal Grey Accent Wall

Okay, this one is charcoal grey but this is a good use of a dark grey accent wall with matching rug and couch, showing how you can have a grey living room without having every single item of furniture grey.

#12 Green and Grey Reading Corner

Grey reading corner with grey poof. That’s a pretty sweet looking leaning mirror too, it has some major The Labyrinth vibes.

#13 Bohemian Grey Living Room


Gallery wall and L-shaped sofa with shaggy rug. The light colored wooden panel flooring looks good with a grey living room, as does the light wooden accent chair. This is a very dramatic living space design for a male living space, the creamy white couch is a nice addition to brighten the space up a bit.

#14 Fresh Grey

This is a really nice bright and fresh grey living room. This shows how grey doesn’t mean a living space has to be dark.

#15 Light Grey and Orange


I guess orange must go really well with grey living spaces! It does look cool, all though remember, any color goes well with grey, as grey is a neutral color. We’re not sure you would want to put a candle under some flammable-looking reed grasses but I guess that’s up to you…

#16 Black and Orange and Grey

Okay, we really really don’t recommend placing a god damn candle on the couch like that, but none the less that is a pretty cool masculine grey living room right there. Again, some more orange pillows, this time with some muted red and dark orange and white pillows, a nice way of accenting the comfy grey couch.

#17 Grey Walls Black Couch

Nice black and grey living space. The grey throw adds a nice texture to the living space. That’s a pretty moody gallery wall too. This room moves from a light grey wall, to a darker grey couch, to a light grey carpet. Good inspiration for moving through shades to create texture and contrast.

#18 Orange, Green and Grey

Once again, some more orange and grey!
